Origin Madagascar

FRAME 16.5x16.5xD5cm Made from recycled products.

Description Rainbow metallic colours on this beautiful day-flying moth. Also known as the Sunset moth for obvious reasons. The colours on the Madagascan sunset moth's wings are produced by the conjunction of two optical phenomena namely optical interference and interscale reflection. It is endemic to the Island of Madagascar where large migrations are seen in certain months. The bright metallic colours are a warning to predators of their toxicity.
